Wetaskiwin Genealogical Society

We, the members of the Wetaskiwin Genealogical Society, were sad to hear that Bill has passed away. Bill and June were members of our branch of the Alberta Genealogical Society for many years; attended our conferences, and contributed their knowledge of genealogical research to our meetings. He and June were such a loving couple – now reunited with each other.
Our sincere sympathy to his family.
